Will festuca glauca grow in partial shade, well drained amended soil?

You will need a full sun (6 or more hours) for your Festuca Glauca to grow well and maintain it's color.

Blue Fescue at 7000 Feet in NM

It is possible that my backyard desert-type soil is not as well-drained as I thought (there are rock shelves not far under), but I am also wondering how pine trees, i.e., acidic soil affect the fescue. My fescue closest to the pine tree did not do well. Also, my red cactus nearby did great for 2 years and then suddenly died. I thought maybe because my yard worker cut it way back in the fall, including the pretty reddish shoot. Any suggestions?
